"John Dennison and Justin Ogilvie: Drawing The Fine Line"
2003-01-30 until 2003-02-22
Diane Farris Gallery
Drawing has become a major mode of expression for many artists over the past few years. A fine Line features drawings on paper and panel by artists John Dennison and Justin Ogilvie.
Justin Ogilvie's works on paper and panel explore the metaphysics of self, namely, how the self is constituted through the presence of the other. In using the figure, he explores this conflict within themes of intimacy between bodies, between lovers, strangers, and even between the myriad of others within the self.
From the pages of his journal John Dennison incorporates elements of natural history, science, the human figure, and architecture. His journal is a vessel for ideas both rudimentary and fully conceived taken from relevant news clippings, calligraphy, and photography.
